OHNI 2017 Calendar of Events

2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for OHNI with a number of new events being added to our annual calendar (see attached pdf below for details) alongside our always popular annual conference. We have tried to spread these events across the country so OHNI really is coming to a venue near you! Members will be able to avail of special discounted rates for all our events and we are introducing a number of members-only events this year too. Members will also have access to our online discussion forum.

This years conference is on the theme of Work and Leisure and will take place in Galway on 23rd & 24th June. Plans are well under way and we hope to have more details for you over the coming weeks.

This year we are pleased to announce that we will also be offering introductory oral history training workshops for the first time. These are scheduled for Dublin in Spring and Limerick in Autumn. However, if your organisation or group would like to arrange a separate training workshop then please do get in touch with us and we will try to facilitate this.

Based on feedback from members at various events over the years we are also piloting a number of OHNI Members-Only Networking Events. These free half-day events are designed simply as an opportunity for OHNI members to meet informally with one another outside of the confines of our conference settings where you can share ideas, talk about your projects and get to know other people in your area involved in oral history. For this year we are having one per province in: the Ulster Museum Belfast; Turlough Park, Castlebar; Trim and Cork City, but members are welcome to attend any (or all) of these.

Finally, we will have our first annual lecture in the closing stages of the year and we will of course circulate more details of this at a later date.

Obviously, none of the above is possible without the continued support of our membership, so we do encourage you to become a member and as always if you have suggestions for improvements, other events or questions we would love to hear from you via or through our social media pages.
